what the rules are for 2012. we are going to have one of the most miserable filing seasons that anybody can remember the key is the alternative minimum tax. it was for 123 people are readily. last year, 4 million people page -- paid the amt. if congress does not do something, there will be 2 million people paying the amt. the average tax bill is $3,500. that is the problem that the men and women in congress have to solve. host: we have three weeks left in the here and there is talk about the fiscal class and talk about sequestration. is it conceivable that they will decide to let the amt go by the wayside and we will always -- all be paying this $3,500 -- we will all be paying this $3,500? guest: we do not think so. people have to remember. tax rates are going to go up for the top two% of the people. that is the worst case scenario for -- tax rates will go up 2% -- will go up for the top 2% of people. 2/3 of the people do not take deductions. they are not involved in this discussion. one other thing that disappeared at the end of last year is the sales-tax deduction. we all get to de
my life misery? -- miserable, at that point some people lash out in horrible irrational ways and do something rash. and but they usually start planning it but they do something like this. usually even these people usually it's more killing the people at the center of their pain. so if the love life is the the center, girl friends. if it's work they kill their boss. in certain cases they expand that circle and lash out at everyone and that's what we have here. now in situations like this i don't know tho know this particular point. and i've avoided talking toobt actual cause in a case like this because we almost never know with any certainty a week out so i think it's irresponsible to even try to decide what happened in this case. and it's also sort of beyond the point. we don't want to find solutions chasing tafert last horror. we can't solve those poor kids in connecticut. what we can do is look at all the shootings, see what most of them have in common, what's usually behind the problem and solve that. and that's our best bet for stopping the next one. host: take a look at a coupl
%. and it's not about being a miser. it's not about wanting to save money. it's about prudence. it's about sound judgments. it's about common sense. what do we know from the 1988 stafford act? here's what we know. what we know is when we changed the cost share to an appropriate level so that we don't get things done on the federal government's taxpayer dime without significant participation of local input, what the studies show is that during that one-year period, the federal government saved $3 billion because projects didn't get funded that weren't priorities because of the 65% federal contribution and 35% cost share. so what this does is reintroduce the 65% federal payment and 35% cost share to do that. and, again, most of these projects aren't going to start until 2015. so priorities are important. so we're borrowing $60 billion -- and this is just the first bill, i'm told, and i'm sure we're going to have to spend money. but should we not be more prudent with how we spend dollars that are going to be borrowed against our children's future? all this says is revert it back to what it's
, it would help the republican candidates. it didn't work, but they sure tried and they made life miserable on election day for millions of americans who were just trying to do their civic duty. too many people stood in long lines. too many people were unable to vote because they couldn't wait in long lines. in florida, for example, published reports indicate some voters waited in line as long as seven hours. couldn't cast their ballots until 2:30 in the morning. now, why would a voter hang in there? some of them were just mad, mad that the state of florida and this republican-inspired organization, alec, was doing everything it could to deny their right to vote, and they were darned determined to do it, even if it meant staying there seven hours, seven hours to vote. too many people were required to cast provisional ballots when they were, in fact, eligible and should have received a regular ballot. pennsylvania, for example, issued double the number of provisional ballots it did in 2008. now, the provisional ballot is given to a voter where there is some question as to their eligibility.
make you and i miserable for a day or two, but could be deadly for patients with suppressed immune systems. regular access to ivig therapy means a better quality of life, less disability, potentially the difference between life and death. unfortunately today current law excludes from medicare coverage the items and the services necessary to administer this ivig therapy in the home. where doctors tell us patients with compromised immune systems can benefit the most. the medicare ivig act to date requires the centers for medicare and medicaid services to do a couple of things. establishes a three-year demonstration project to cover these items and services necessary to do this therapy in the home, evaluates the impacts of the demonstration project on access for these medicare beneficiaries, and realizes the appropriateness of implementing a new methodology for ivig in all care settings under medicare part b and updates the previous report on this by the assistant secretary of planning and evaluation. it's my intent that the required study consider the impact of lag time with respect
because it's what they did instead of counting and miserably in the back to the drawing board. but my preference would have been to have somebody from the outside sitting down and doing it in a reasonable fashion, so that's best for the country, what's best for the district, what's best for the state. >> tying into all of this of the role of parties. more americans over the course of your tenure identify themselves as political. what has that done to the party during the past couple decades? >> not as much as super committees. in the citizens united case that's probably been more on maybe some of the other things with less partisanship and less willingness to come together. i happen to agree on the political parties but in nebraska the nebraska legislature is a officially nonpartisan. some people just run for the seat. they don't run as republicans or democrats. generally republicans are, democrats are, but it's not uncommon for democrats to be chairmen of committees even if there's a majority of republicans unofficially. so i come from an environment there was spirit and was spun by
